Bicycle Mechanics


Many bicycle mechanics work a standard 40-hour week. In some areas of the country, mechanics may find that their hours increase in the spring, when people bring their bikes out of storage, and decrease when the weather gets colder. Workers in this field are typically paid on an hourly basis. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, in May 2014 salaries for bicycle repairers ranged from less than $8.94 per hour (or less than $18,600 per year) for the lowest 10 percent, comprising trainees and inexperienced mechanics, to $17.91 or more an hour ($37,260) or more a year) for the top 10 percent. The median salary for bicycle repairers was $17.68 an hour, or $26,370 a year.
